The Three Postal Services

In yesterday's Washington Post, reporter Margaret Webb Pressler writes an article "Postal Paradox," that she believes that there are actually three Postal Services.

"The first Postal Service is the one that executives are trying to fix, the one with the bad rap, the one that delivers mail late, the one that drives people crazy with its long lines and sold-out 2-cent stamps," Pressler says.

"Then there is the Postal Service that has made huge strides in on-time delivery, runs one of the most impressively automated operations in the world and, for now, is bringing in a huge profit."

The third Postal Service? The one we remember fondly from days gone by.
